Summer Catchup+Eats and Exercise

     Thank God it’s Friday! This has been my first week back from mission trip and while I’m glad to be home, it’s hard to get back in the swing of things. I’m looking forward to a relaxed weekend before a busy next week. I’m going to a party for Matins (my church’s high school choir that I’m a part of) tonight, yoga at the Lululemon showroom tomorrow morning and don’t have much else planned. I’ll be riding RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa for those of you who live under a rock) on Tuesday and Wednesday, have lunch plans with a friend on Monday and cross country camp at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa starting Sunday! Wheww! Summer is going by SO FAST. I can’t believe that the official start of the cross country season starts in less than a month and our first race a couple weeks after that. And, school starts in just over a month, too. Also, I’ll be competing in my second (Well, kind of. Read about my first here.) sprint triathlon of the season: Bluff Creek. I’m super excited and feel very prepared. The week before that race will be spent in Minnesota with my family. In my spare time, I’ve been reading the Pretty Little Liars series, (Will it ever end?) sunbathing, hoola hooping for as long as possible while catching up on my celebrity gossip on E! Network, blogging, trying new workout videos on youtube and working on Semester 2 of Geometry online. I am a busy girl and love every second of it! Okay, enough of that! On to my recent eats and excercise. (Note: Didn’t include week while on mission trip. Didn’t take pictures of food and exercise consisted of long speed walks, manual labor and hour long yoga sessions.)
